About me: NW13 (neutral-cool toned, very fair), blue eyes, Color season is True Summer, Baumann Skin Type is OSPW.
this is a lovely bronzer. It has red tones rather than orange tones, making me believe it would be better suited for cool toned people. However, at NW13, I cannot wear this as its soo pigmented and heavy. I must wait until summer when I am nw20. but I must say, this is a huge value. Product lasts forever.

A BB s/a tried this on me and I went later to get it, but tried the Too Faced Choc Soliel and there was no comparision, the BB side pulled a lot of orange, and the Too Faced side did not. There was a bit too much sparkle in BB as I want matte anyway. However, I do not use this as a blush, I use it for definition (the Too Faced) on my face. For that use, this BB bronzer looks terible.

Initially I thought this bronzer would be too dark for my skintone, which is NC15 during most of the year and maybe NC20 during the summer if I'm not diligent with my sunscreen. However, this bronzer suits my skintone quite well. It's a matte light brown with no red or orange tones. This product adds just enough colour to my face to give the appearance that I'm lightly tanned. Also, this bronzer blends nicely and doesn't leave any harsh or obvious lines. This is a great bronzer for fair skin!

I was in the market for a good contouring powder and this fits the bill! Super pleased with it. I feel like it brings out a shape from yesteryear (:)) And it's relatively user friendly. No glitter or sheen. It shadows the way a good contour powder (imo) should.
I have pretty fair skin with pink undertones. I use the Natural (middle) shade and it's spot on for my purposes. If I planned to used it on any other parts of my face (other than just contouring) I woud definitely opt for a lighter shade.
Packaging is nice. Simple but sturdy. There is a little (easy to push wiht one hand) button to unclasp the compact. A nice mirror inside is also handy.
Another nice product from Bobbi Brown.

The most amazing contour colour I've ever come across. It's not orange (very natural as the name suggests), has a cool tone for the winter but can also be used in the summer with a shimmery bronzer for a warm glowing look. I'm running out so I decided to go for Mac Harmony blusher (contour colour) today, got home and tried them side by side but found out that this Bobbi Brown one has a cooler tone and a better colour consistency so I gave the Mac to my friend and going to get the BB Natural again soon!!
I just read some reviews that this is really muddy and I agree only when I didn't know how to apply it correctly. I found it's much better when I pick up the powder with the contour brush then swirl it on the back of my hand because you need the tiniest amount, then apply the leftover product on the brush to the face so that it's very very sheer. Then keep repeating the process.

This bronzer is a reddish brown shade, without shimmer. It is richly pigmented as well. It is one of the few bronzers that I can use as a fair-skinned Irish girl, that doesn't make me look dirty. It is the red component of the color that gives it believability because that is typically the color I turn in the sun - red. This is a much better option than the light for someone of my coloring - fair skin, reddish brown hair. I use it on my cheeks, forehead and eyelids. Great stuff.

I use this bronzer to contour my face. It is a good product. Finely milled and pigmented. As other reviewers have pointed out, the colors is a true brown, which looks natural on my fair skin and does not accentuate redness. I cannot use bronzer/contouring powder that is a yellow-based color because it would look unnatural on my face.
Nice packaging. I like that it comes with a mirror though I rarely use it.
The price is steep but it comes with a quantity (8g). This product will last a really long time and it does not break me out so I am okay to invest. :)
I don't think I would run out of this product in a hurry, maybe in 5-6 years' time. I would buy it again.

For reference: I'm an NC30, black hair, brown eyes.
I love this bronzer, it really gives me the natural "I've been out at the beach all day" look, without making me look muddy. I love that it is matte because I can also use this for contouring my face (which works great). The bronzer is also easy to blend.
The powder is super pigmented. You really need a light hand in picking up product and you'd still need to tap some excess powder off or else it might end up being too dark.
It is expensive though ($33), but it is a lot of product. Since it is pigmented, it would hopefully last me a long time.

I love the colour of this product! it does give that sun kissed look, and it isnt shimmery its very matte. But the problem i had with this is that when i apply to the apples of my cheeks, it seems to seperate and look blotchy...which looks awful! i dont know whether or not its the way i am applying it, or my foundation underneath just doesnt work with it, but i dont like it so im taking a lippy away from it because of that. Otherwise if you can avoid the seperation and blotchiness, id reccommend it.

I'm now on my third one of these, i love it, its finely milled, as you might expect from Bobbi Brown as well as being highly pigmented and has no sparkle or shimmer to it, which i love. i dont find it looks muddy on me, however i do get a muddy look when ive used benefit hoola in the past. BB bronzer has a big thumbs up from me, and as long as they continue to make it, I will keep buyin!!

I wanted to like this since I'd been hunting for a good matte bronzer for a long time and I love Bobbi cosmetics, but this just didn't cut it for me. I tried it both for contouring and on my cheeks, but it just looked muddy and unnatural no matter how hard I blended, which was odd because the first few times I used it, it looked fine. Perhaps I can blame the lighting. But in natural light, this made me look muddy/ashen, and was just SO unflattering, and rubbed off on everything I own. Worse of all, as with some other BB products, this broke me out quite terribly, in small little rashes across my face, and did it so slowly it took me awhile to figure out what it was. But for people for whom the colour selection works and who don't react badly, this bronzer is nicely pigmented, non-shimmery and easy to work with. It's just really not for me.

I love this product. I also have this in the medium which works for me too. It's a lovely matte bronzer. I am Mac NW20 for reference.
I have a face that is darker and redder in tone than my neck. This bronzer works perfectly to match my neck to my face. Then I like to apply to my forehead and nose for color, and a bit to my cheeks. It brightens and bronzes my too pale face in the winter.
At first I was using the medium more, but right now I am using this one more. For some reason both work for me.

Great bronzer for the winter. I am fair with very red undertones and light features. In the winter, my skin looks more pink from the cold air. I can't wear pink blush b/c it will look too red and peachy colors will make me look like a clown. I have to watch with bronzers b/c they'll oxidize into an orange or muddy color by the end of the day. This bronzer makes me look alive! Oxidizes into a natural color. No orange or Muddiness! Don't know how I lived without it...

Oooh no this wasn't right at all!!!
I use the 'Medium' shade through the summer and it's absolutely fab (the exact colour I go when I tan) and I was looking for a shade I could use during the winter and for some reason chose this one, cos I heard on QVC that it was right for my skin tone and has beige in it.
Well I can't see beige but what I can see is a dirty ruddy mess - whereas 'Medium' has that browny red glow, this has a sort of pinky red rosacae look to it and is not at all flattering on my NC20/25 skin at all. Plus the texture of this one is nothing like as good as the Medium - it's really weird actually as it just does not blend in the same way at all and leaves you looking like you have a dirty face.
Finally I ended up trying 'Light' and that's the right shade for me during the winter and has the same texture as the Medium!

I have far too many bronzers as I'm always searching for the perfect one--not too orange, not too sparkly, not too heavy, not comedogenic. BB in Natural is a good bronzer on all of the above. I took off one lippie b/c you have to be very careful in application as it is highly pigmented. I use MAC's skunk brush to apply; anything else and I have to blend forever. The extra work is worth it for the natural color. The only thing better is the Tom Ford for Estee Lauder Azuree bronzer, and the BB is much more affordable. (Note: These two are not similar in color--Azuree is much more golden and lighter than the BB--but these are two that I feel are good in the categories I mention above. Others I consider good in those categories include the GlowFusion bronzers and Giorgio Armani's Bronzer #1.)

I like this but I don't love it. It does the job of warming up my PPP skin but nothing more. The color is average, looks way dark in the pan but gives a normal looking tan payoff. Its natural enough looking but it does not give me that glow I require from a bronzer. I'll stick with my staple (MAC Refined Golden) but I'll hang on to this and play around with it. Its by no means an awful product but I just wasent wowed. I won't repurchase this shade but will / would try another color since the quality of BB bronzers is awesome.

I originally got this bronzer in the bronzer/blush duo (natural/pale pink). It's a great colour for people who are both fair skinned with slightly pinky undertones, as it's beige based, so it won't accentuate any redness in your skin. It's got an almost creamy smooth texture, although it's a powder. A little goes a long way. I always dust this on the back of my hand before applying and just do the forehead, temples, nose and chin. It just gives a nice overall effect to make you look healthier and a little bit sunkissed. It's not the kind of bronzer that will make people think, "Wow, she's brown!" Instead, it's very typical bobbi brown, natural and understated. It is a bit overpriced though, but seems like the compact will last forever so hopefully won't have to buy another one in the foreseeable future!

Bronzers with shimmer look awful on me, so I tried this. It's not orange at all, which is also why I bought it. The color is great if you're pale like me. BUT, it looked like I had smeared dirt all over my face. No matter what I do, this happens with this bronzer. Even with a huge skunk brush. Now I've finally figured out that I need my bronzer to have a little bit of shimmer in it to look good. This is just *too* matte. However a lot of people like it so YMMV.

This is my first bronzer. It looked very muddy on me. I already used it with a very light hand. Not sure if it is my technique, but I don't think I will use this again after one application! In fact, I had to redo my makeup after taking the bronzer off.
Edit: I believe this caused my break out. I just purchased this and blush in tawny. Both looked awful and caused me to break out. I will never purchase BB makeup again!
